Excerpt: Use this for professional recording and am very pleased with the HD quality. Recommend the accessory flash drive to go with it for dual recording on SD Cards (provides back-up in case of card failure in addition to any other back-up you're using).
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Great Zoom, Zoom range/performance
Summary: I am a professional videographer, video editor, 3D animator, effects compositor, graphic and web designer, and voice artist with about 15+ years of experience. This is my first purchase of my own for shooting video and I was under a tight budget. Even though I did my due diligence and homework, I was still worried that this wouldn't work for me. Within three days of arrival I took it on a two day shoot and it performed like a CHAMP! Easy to use, very customizable.
GREAT QUALITY VIDEO. GREAT FOR EDITING. GREAT FOR PRO VIDEO.

Summary: The SONY NXCAM IS THE BEST CAMERA! IT MAKES PROFESSIONAL QUALITY VIDEO AND IS AN AFFORDABLE CAMERA. ITS BATTERY LIFE IS GREAT, AND SHOOTING INTO THE OPTIONAL FLASH DRIVE MAKES EDITING VERY SIMPLE. THIS IS THE BEST CAMERA I HAVE EVER OWNED AND OPERATED. THANKS SO MUCH SONY FOR MAKING SUCH A GREAT CAMERA!
Excerpt: Bought 2 Units from B&H. The items arrived well packaged and worked out of the Box. I love the features and flexibility Sony put into this product @ its price range. I hope it stays for a little while longer.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Zoom range/performance
Excerpt: I've been using this camera since 2010 and it has been a solid performer. So I purchased a second one to replace an aging V1U. I like the fact that it writes to inexpensive media cards and utilizes the AVCHD codec. As of the writing of this review I have not had any issues with this camera and use it in some extreme conditions. The controls are easy to uderstand and adjust. It's a great long format shooter as well as a capable run and gun camera.
Pros: Easy to Use, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Great Zoom
Excerpt: I purchased a Sony HXR-NX5U in October 2013. I had the opportunity to use this same camcorder/model while filming outdoor television. As I continued to grow in the industry, I could not think of a better product to have at my side. This camcorder is perfect for Treestand hunting, confessional settings and we even use it for Spot and Stalk hunts. Thanks for a great product all around.
Pros: Easy to Use, Great Picture Quality, Zoom range/performance
